We’ve definitely had one heck of a weekend.
We finally got to see Tammy’s best friend Krista from New Hampshire. It’s been a very long time, too long in fact. We had a fantastic time with them when we had the chance to meet with them during their honeymoon.
Friday was pretty hectic considering I only had three hours sleep. I simply couldn’t fall asleep the night before, and having to get up at 5AM, I didn’t have a choice but to get up, get ready, and drive!!
So we did. Our three hour drive from Cedar to Lake Powell was very nice and relaxing. Then we got to meet with Kris and her husband Andy for the second time during their honeymoon. Shortly afterwards, we walked down to our tour boat and began our 7 1/2 hours tour of Lake Powell.
We rode the Colorado River for 3 hours to get to Rainbow Bridge. Then we were given 90 minutes to hike to Rainbow Bridge and take our pictures, then the 3 hour trip back.
We also took a few pictures from the drive to Lake Powell as we went through Zion National Park. Here are these pictures.
After dinner with Andy and Kris in their hotel room, we started our drive back around 7:45PM. After the hour difference, we arrived home around 11:45PM. Having only 3 hours sleep the night before, I was tired! We got to bed around 1AM after settling back in and talking about our trip.
Yesterday, the 14th, after dealing with drama from our in-laws and my mom, we decided to go to Kolob Canyons. Kolob was an excellent decision for a break. Being only 20 minutes from Cedar, we were amazed at how awesome Kolob Canyons really is. We went on the Taylor Creek hike. Here are some photos of this.
Depending on how the weather is Monday, we’ll decide whether to stay home or head to Dixie National Forest for some neat looking trails there. Looks fun!
Enjoy the pictures!
